Nintendo marketing Wario Land at Six Flags

Ah, the smells of a bustling amusement park on a sunny fall afternoon, the air thick with the welcoming scent of funnel cakes, popcorn and…flatulence.

Nintendo announced in a press release yesterday it will be promoting Wario Land: Shake It!, the Wii platformer starring the company’s gassiest antagonist, at participating Six Flags locations.

From the press release:

Nintendo has teamed up with Six Flags to take over 10 theme parks throughout the country this September. In celebration of the release of Wario Land: Shake It!, the new game for the Wii console, Nintendo will be giving park guests the opportunity to check out the game and win prizes.

As part of the theme park takeover, Wario Land: Shake It! game-play interactives will be available at the 10 Six Flags parks’ Wii Experience areas to allow Wario fans and park guests the chance to experience the game first-hand and reconnect with the long-running Wario franchise.

During the Sept. 27 stops in Los Angeles and St. Louis, guests will complete for prizes including a Wii system and a copy of Wario Land, a Nintendo DS, Six Flags gift certificates and even a trip to New York City to visit the Nintendo World Store.

Wario Land: Shake It! is scheduled to release next week.
